Skegness club-goer ‘swung punches’ at security staff

A 28-year-old woman, who had been ejected from a Skegness night spot for arguing with the DJ, swung punches at one of the security staff, a court has been told.

Julie Grundy of Roman Bank admitted using threatening behaviour towards Mick Rodgers with intent to cause him to believe that immediate unlawful violence would be used against him.

Paul Wood, prosecuting at Skegness Magistrates Court, said that Ms Grundy was ejected with a friend from the club in the early hours of June 6 because they had been arguing with the DJ.

Outside, she was seen swinging her arms at Mr Rodgers and aiming punches at him although she did not connect.

He told the court that she had a recent conviction for assaulting a police officer.

Mitigating, Dave Clapham said that when Ms Grundy had had a drink and something went against her or the group she was with, she ‘goes wrong’.

He said she did not drink every day but when she did she tended to binge.

District Judge Stobart told her she had to stop getting into such a state that she threw her weight about.

“Not that you’ve got much weight to throw about,” he added.

He fined her £100 and ordered her to pay £85 in costs and a £20 victim surcharge.
